Careers for SSEES students

Support for your career at SSEES

Careers support for SSEES students is offered throughout the academic year. This year, all appointments and events are taking place online due to Covid-19 social distancing measures.

Careers coaching appointments, CV and applications advice, and practice interviews are available every weekday. Please book these through your MyUCLCareers account. Specialist support is also offered to research students, recent graduates and students with disabilities.

Careers fairs, departmental careers workshops, employer meet-and-greets, alumni panels and hundreds of other careers events run throughout the year.  These can be viewed and booked through your MyUCLCareers account. 

UCL Careers advertises graduate jobs, work experience opportunities and internships on the MyUCLCareers Jobs Board.

Job-hunting resources for opportunities in the SSEES region, along with plenty of other careers help, is on the SSEES Careers moodle page. Our Careers Essentials e-learning course, which runs alongside live workshops of the same name, provides practical "how-to" help on deciding on a career, understanding the graduate labour market, writing applications and interviewing for jobs.  

SSEES organises two main careers events at the School: the SSEES Alumni Careers Evening (Term 1) and the SSEES Careers Employers Event (Term 2). Both offer opportunities for networking, a chance to hear from employers with relevant job opportunities and a chance to hear from talented SSEES alumni.  

All careers support is available for SSEES alumni for two years after graduation.

SSEES Careers Liaison Tutor: Dr Ben Noble

Some undergraduates and many postgraduates who come to SSEES already know exactly what they want to do when they leave. Others have no firm plans. In fact, many of those who come here change their minds as they find out new opportunities that they had hardly heard of, or didn’t think that they could do. The UCL Careers Service plays a vital role for many students in helping you find out what’s available and how to get to the right job or course at the end of your study here.

My job is not to give careers advice but to make sure that SSEES students know what the UCL Careers Service offers you. I organise one evening event in Term 1 when SSEES alumni talk to current students about their careers. This is separate from the SSEES Employers’ Evening which Hilary Moor organises and is a recruitment event. The alumni tell current student about how they got where they are now, what actions they took which helped them and what mistakes they made.


Careers Consultant for SSEES: Hilary Moor

I’m the Senior Careers Consultant here at SSEES. I offer individual careers coaching, and I also run a series of specialised career talks and events throughout the academic year, focussed on the particular career aspirations of students at SSEES.  

I'm here to help you explore all your career opportunities, market yourself effectively in the UK and the SSEES region and help introduce you to alumni and employers who can help you understand the type of roles a SSEES degree can lead to – and how to get there.

This year, all careers events will run online.  To view our full list of events, and to book an appointment to see me or anyone else in our team, please visit UCL Careers.
